Helping Communities Work has journalistic roots in, "Empowering Rural America - A New Model Emerges", published in 2010 in Government Technology Magazine. The article focuses on broadband expansion and workforce development through a story line that features the impact of rural entrepreneurship in Franklin County, Virginia.
Service Science, a service system innovation that facilitates the co-creation of diverse societal value, is also referenced in the article. "Whole Community, Whole School, Whole Child: Telling the Whole Story" will also feature how the Service Science discipline is supporting diversity, equity and inclusion in community schools.
HCW welcomes opportunities to collaborate with stakeholders in "Investing in Rural Prosperity", an economic development plan for rural communities. The initiative is detailed in a book of the same name, edited by the St. Louis Federal Reserve Bank and the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System.
